(Photo: RON KALASINKAS)By PAUL GOTHAMWith the Section V boys’ basketball playoffs about to tip off, a survey of the top performers from the 2019 class.Miles Brown 6-foot-1 Sr. G Northstar Christian Academy Knights (Private/Independent) – Section V’s all-time leading scorer, where he was capable from long range in the past Brown has shown that he is 3-point threat this season which only added to his already impressive skill set, possesses the unique quality of being able to slow the game to his speed, he is comfortable in the open court making decisions whether to feed teammates or go to the basket, deft touch with either hand at the rim,  his knack for finding and setting up open teammates is an overlooked strength, it is easy to think that with his career points that he is a volume shooter – Brown is not, works well in traffic; willing defender, strong on the ball when playing man-to-man, makes intelligent adjustments off the ball, understands how to play angles and beat the ball handler to the spot; has scored 2,883 career points (3rd all-time in New York State) currently averaging 34.0 PPG; has received Division I offers from Bryant, Canisius, Central Arkansas, Fordham, Niagara and Stony Brook.Daniel Cook 6-foot-5, Sr. G/F Pittsford Mendon Vikings (Monroe County Division III) – Sure-handed with impressive footwork around the basket, Cook is a fundamentally-sound player who allows the game to come to him and can take over when the opportunity presents itself;  impressive back-to-basket game, can sense defensive pressure and make adjustments from there, finishes with either hand at the rim with contact, accomplished passer who finds teammates open on opposite side of the floor from the low block, his catch-and-face game combined with the ability to put the ball to the floor and attack makes him difficult to defend, runs the floor well and can catch and finish in transition; aggressive rebounder who doesn’t stop after initial contact made by opposing players, strong hands, keen instincts to spark transition; tireless defender, quick enough to front in the post and yet get position for rebounds, uses length to limit vision of opponents; registered 19 double-doubles this season.Jakhi Lucas 6-foot-1 Sr. G UPrep (Private/Independent) – Lucas seamlessly stepped into the role of UPrep’s primary scorer; as a sophomore he played behind current UB Bull Jeenathan Williams, at times last year he deferred to Elroy Clark, has the ability to distort an opposing defense, uses low center of gravity to create space, has to be defended three feet behind the arc, but strong first step and solid torso allows him to get to the basket where he finishes with either hand, thrives on contact, crafty defender who despite playing a high volume of minutes frequently draws the assignment of guarding the opponent’s best player, he fulfills that responsibility without fail; active rebounder who gets good position in the lane and can run down long caroms; averaging 25.6 PPG, has scored 1,409 career points.Keith Slack 5-foot-9 Sr. G Gates-Chili Spartans (Monroe County Division II) – Change of direction and change of pace rolled into one package, Gates-Chili’s leading scorer (24.2 PPG) gets downhill quickly in the open court, but is rarely, if ever, out of control, puts defenders on their heels and knows how to take advantage from there, his work in the half-court is just as impressive, able to force a defense into retreat mode to take away his drive, the phrase “stops on a dime” applies, uses low center of gravity for a pull-up jumper that makes defending him all the more daunting, has to be defended two steps behind the arc; active defender who sees one play/pass ahead to anticipate steals, rarely caught out of position and has to be accounted for when running offense; despite size limitations a skilled geometrician who reads caroms off the rim and plucks long rebounds; has scored 1,685 career points.Justice Smith 6-foot-6 Sr. G Lyons Lions (Wayne County) – Leader of the top-seeded and reigning Class C2 champion Lions, inside-outside threat, range beyond the 3-point arc with a quick release, capable of knocking down catch-and-shoot treys in half court sets and has to be guarded tightly in transition or he will stop and pop from long range, puts the ball to the floor well and takes straight lines to the basket where he thrives on contact, can finish at the rim with either hand, impressive body control, slows the game to his speed; capable defender who can contain smaller ballhandlers and neutralize bigger players in the post; active rebounder with a nose for the ball, keeps moving after initial contact in box-out situations; has logged 19 double-doubles this season and scored 1,856 career points.Names to know of other student-athletes from the 2019 class: Danny Ames/Addison, Caleb Anger/C.G.
